Exclusive: Forest frustration

FootballTransfers can reveal that Nottingham Forest are growing frustrated with Harry Arter, who is refusing to leave despite not having played for the club in three years.

Chelsea's striker search

Chelsea are looking to bring in more firepower and they are said to be readying a €60m offer for a familiar face.

But do they actually need to sign another striker? Romelu Lukaku is right there and he's currently scoring for fun.

However, it's not all rosy for the Belgian as he has just been dropped by his agency.

Saka problem

Arsenal still don't have a proper backup for Bukayo Saka and this could become an issue because the England star has not missed a Premier League game since May 2021 - that is an outrageous workload.

Mikel Arteta is also facing a potential problem between the sticks after dropping Aaron Ramsdale.

Ten Hag's headache

Manchester United are in crisis mode.

Despite Andre Onana's howler against Bayern, it is another one of Ten Hag's favourites that is the biggest cause for concern.

Meanwhile, the takeover is still dragging on in the background and a stalemate has officially been reached.

Still-exiled star Jadon Sancho is 'suddenly close' to one of the world's biggest clubs as he looks to end his Old Trafford nightmare.
